    How can i get a Diecast model of my WRX?

    Not sure which category was right to post this sorry. I was wondering what kind of work it takes to make a replica of your car? I see them at car shows and always wanted one of my car. The first step of course would be to buy a 1:18 of my year/model. And then can you buy parts to replace on them? Like hoods/wheels/spoilers etc.. Or is it all completely cutting/drilling/painting and making parts from scratch? Sorry for the noob-ness i tried to search but didnt find much. Thanks.

    I have a Tokyo police car version of my bugeye:



    I also have a 2013 STI with rubber wheels, a hand painted engine bay, and lots of other neat features. Takara Tomy sells all kinds of cool Hot Wheels-sized cars, mostly various Japanese makes. Unlike Hot Wheels, though, they stick to cars people actually buy and see on the roads.

    I always pick up a couple when I'm in Asia. I've got quite a collection on my desk now.

    The wagon is impossible to find. My wife ended up buying me the sedan version:

    There are places that offer 3d printing services, I'm sure you could make a 3d printed model of your exact model or exact car. Best thoughts, I can't imagine there's to many companies who sell wrx models! But who knows, did you check google?
